OK, portage is up to date with 20050830 so I'm building that now.

I *beleive* I do have 32-bit support. It's supplied, according to the
Gentoo ocs, through some emulation libraries that I do have installed:

lightning ~ # qpkg -I | grep emul-linux
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-baselibs *
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-compat *
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-glibc *
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-gtklibs *
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-soundlibs *
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-xlibs *
lightning ~ #

I'll start with these and see how it goes.

Additionally I'm building 20050830 on one of my 32-bit machines.
